I saw this idea on SCS by BeeDaLee under "Bride and Groom Party Favors". I cut CS from a template I made and covered a small box. I used a cuttlebug embossing plate on shiny white paper. The Tux was made with Black CS and some shiny black paper cut out for the lapel. I stamped a rose, cut it out, used crystal effects to make the grooms boutonniere. For the bridal bouquet, I used the trio flower punch and a small heart punch for the bouquet. Added a small bow for the back and attached it all at her waistline. To keep the nut cups closed at the top, I used a white paperclips, although you could make the front paper longer, bend it to the back and punch slots for a ribbon.
I cut a small circle of tulle and basted a line of stitching through the center, pulling it closed to look like a tiny veil, glued a small flower on top and held the box with a paperclip. (The Bride at my shower attached a few veil paperclips in her hair for a picture)
For the grooms bow tie. I took a small piece of satin ribbon and gather it in the center and glued it at the neck.The grooms buttons, were small black circles cut from the shiney black CS, using the Cropodile.
I hope you like it, the Bride and guests made a big fuss over them at the shower. Then you give a bride & groom for the Bride to keep.
